Dr. Julie Turner’s research focus has been based on understanding how an individual’s behaviors link to population-level dynamics, especially in light of conservation concerns. She has worked across continents with animals ranging from spotted hyenas to snails. Recently she has been focusing on how movement, space use, and social behaviors among individuals influence population-level properties. Specifically, she is studying how these behaviors relate to health and mortality among caribou and wolves. Additionally, she works on projection models to forecast movement and habitat selection into the future to help inform conservation management schemes with the Western Boreal Initiative.
